Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2011
Fandango, the nation's leading moviegoer destination, announced today the upcoming launch of its new Fandango App for Android Tablets.
The Fandango App for the Android tablet offers a new, faster way to browse for movie information that is custom-tailored for the Honeycomb operating system. Features include: a personalized approach to finding showtimes for movies at favorite theaters; immersive, high-definition video and photos; and The Pulse, a visual representation of the company’s hottest ticket sellers.
Since launching its first mobile application in 2008, Fandango has become the provider of the nation's most widely-used mobile moviegoing applications. The company’s various mobile and tablet apps won three 2011 Webby Awards, while its mobile site won the Digiday MOBI Award in September.
“Mobile devices and tablets play a vital role for moviegoers these days, and Fandango has seen tremendous growth in this area,” says Rick Butler, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Fandango. “Because Android is an open platform, moviegoers will be able to enjoy Fandango on a wide array of new Android-enabled devices.”
Fandango’s mobile offerings have reached a number of key milestones recently:
- Twenty percent of Fandango’s summer movie ticket sales have been generated by its mobile applications and mobile site. This sets Fandango's record for the most mobile movie tickets sold during a summer movie season.
- Forty percent of Fandango traffic comes from mobile devices and tablets.
- Fandango has seen nearly 20 million downloads of its various apps.
The Fandango app for Android tablets will be available October 25.
